Student Community Service Awards
For over 40 years, The Center has worked to mobilize Triangle area students to volunteer and make a difference. Last year our students were recognized for over 50,000 hours of service to the Triangle community. Annually, we host the Tomorrow's Community Leaders Award Ceremony for all student achievement programs each fall.

 Joyce Frederick
Habitat for Humanity of Durham

Habitat for Humanity of Durham owes an enormous debt of gratitude to Joyce Frederick. Rather than hammering nails or sawing boards, Joyce does the financial management that makes the other work possible, maintaining financial records and completing a monthly reconciliation system for mortgage payments. She also revised an internal control questionnaire required by auditors and organized the workers’ compensation certificates. Joyce’s work helps Habitat to be efficient and effective; this means that more homes are built for more families. Joyce’s commitment to service is extraordinary; even when she required knee surgery, she climbed three flights of stairs every week to get her work done, and after the surgery, she returned to work as soon as she could. Jane Pate, Joyce’s supervisor, notes that she is “friendly, punctual, and engaged” and adds, “we know we can count on Joyce's caring presence and professional-level support.”

Thank you, Joyce, for the tremendous work you’ve done to support the mission of this great organization.

After more than 40 years 
as the Volunteer Center
we changed our name to reflect
WHAT we do and WHERE we do it.
We serve ALL nonprofits & volunteers
throughout the Triangle
and now our name fits our mission! 

The Center serves more than 1,200 nonprofits and thousands of terrific volunteers in:
Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham, Hillsborough Morrisville, Raleigh...across the entire Triangle area!
